This was my Masters thesis project, so it was totally carried out by me under my supervisor's vision.

The project was based on Wind Engineering in Urban Development. When buildings are made, the overall ventilation of the neighbourhood is usually not taken into consideration, and can often lead to discomfort for occupants and pedestrian. In this project, I designed a semi-urban neighbourhood from scratch using CAD tools and ran CFD simulations to measure the overall flow rate and pressure for a typical Glasgow area in Scotland.
